  4. Keep stirring until your milk starts to thicken. Stirring is important as the more you stir, the thicker the milk becomes.
  5. Once you are satisfied with the mixture’s consistency, turn the heat off and move the pan to a cooler surface.
  6. Now, all you need to do is allow the condensed milk to cool for about an hour or so. When it has cooled, pour it into an airtight jar and put it in your fridge or use it right away!

What Makes Homemade Condensed Milk Better?

When you make your own condensed milk at home, you get to pick the ingredients that go into it. For example, you can use honey instead of sugar or add a bit of vanilla for that extra pop of flavor. Another benefit is that homemade condensed milk is healthier and a better option for people who do not like canned foods.

Another great reason to make your own condensed milk is that it is much more cost-effective than buying them from stores. You can save a lot of money, especially if you purchase milk powder in bulk or use whole milk.

Can The Consistency Be Altered?

You can always change the consistency of the condensed milk you make according to your taste. If you think that what you made is a little too runny, wait for it to cool before adding more milk powder. Once it has cooled, the consistency changes and can turn out thicker than you first thought, so making any changes may not be necessary. If you find your condensed milk too thick after it cools, you can pour in a little hot water and stir again or add more milk powder if you find it runny.

No matter how you like your condensed milk to be, you can make it suit your fancy! That is one of the awesome things about making your own at home!
